Army announced that they will be playing more games at Yankee Stadium in the coming years.

Corrigan said Army will play Connecticut in 2014 and Rutgers on Nov. 21, 2015 at Yankee Stadium.
Connecticut replaces a game, originally scheduled against Boston College on Nov. 8.
Army and Notre Dame are still working on a return to Yankee Stadium in 2016, Corrigan said. The Black Knights and the Irish played the first college football game at the new Yankee Stadium on Oct. 20, 2010. Army and Rutgers met on Nov. 12, 2011, in the Bronx.

Games against UConn, Rutgers and Notre Dame complete Army's contracted deal with the Yankees and give the Black Knights a shot at finally winning a game in new Yankee Stadium.

 Without a win in Army's home away from home, these games are little more than a novelty. With its move to the Big Ten Rutgers could be significantly stronger by 2015 so I look at the UConn game as Army's winnable game in this Yankee Stadium series.
